Your 1st Line Defence operative was a joy to work with. He was really great with our volunteers and was incredibly informative about his work – not to mention lending a hand to our dig!

Project Manager, City of London

1st Line Defence have now undertaken a number of pre-acquisition desk top studies for us. They have proven to be informative and instructive as to site conditions and the likely risks associated. We have also employed them on site to undertake site investigation of piling locations. They undertook these works efficiently, on programme and competitively. On their site performance to date, 1st Line Defence will continue to be our choice for UXO reports and site works.

1st Line Defence understands our business and requirements and have been able to assist in reaching practical and swift solutions to potential UXO threat. We have found 1LD to be knowledgeable in their specialist field, and they have always been helpful, pragmatic and professional in their approach to the work they have done for CGL to date. We would certainly use 1LD again on future projects where UXO services are required.

Technical Director, CGL

Your engineer was a pleasure to work with on site and really helpful to my team. He really went above and beyond the last two days and we cannot thank him enough and hope that we will see him again soon!

Engineer, RSK

They were very helpful from the first contact, offering advice on methodology and approach to working on an awkward site. They were also flexible with our proposed programme of works and provided a quick response to our enquiry, mobilising an engineer to site at relatively short notice. Their UXO engineer was very professional, giving clear and comprehensive induction to the site works team. He was also accommodating, adjusting to a changing work programme at very short notice. His communication was excellent and he carried out work diligently. The office staff have always been very pleasant and happy to help where they can. I would happily recommend them and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them again.
